Dream About Black Panther

By on September 10, 2017

Black panthers are sleek, powerful creatures. They are often portrayed in art because of their power and beauty. When you have a dream about black panthers, you may initially struggle to figure out what they mean. Luckily, this animal is often a good indicator in dreams. To learn more about what it means, read on.

What Does a Dream About Black Panther Mean?

Black panther dreams often show a protective, powerful presence in your life. They are a powerful creature that represents grace, beauty and strength. They may also signify that you have an aggressive, ferocious personality. You may be the type of person who fights for your rights and what you want out of life. This attitude may extend to others as you fight to protect people who are not strong enough to protect themselves.

The black panther may mean that you should use wisdom to decide your next step. Sometimes, the black panther appears to show you that others may be trying to use you. You have to be careful in making your decisions because someone near you may be acting with deceit. If this is the case, you should carefully look around you to see if there is someone you should be wary about.

If the panther is attacking you in the dream, it means that someone may be trying to slander you. If you end up killing the attacking panther, it means that their slander will be proven to be false. If the panther is stalking you, it shows that your enemies are lurking in the distance. There may be people you know who are causing trouble or bringing negative energy into your life. Start by protecting yourself and take action if you need to. Meanwhile, reevaluate the people close to you to make sure that they deserve your trust.

If you are fighting a black panther in your dream, it shows that you will overcome your enemies and any difficulties that are thrown your way. If you see a partner threatening you, it indicates that there may be a problem at work or with your business. Meanwhile, a growling panther is a sign that bad news will soon appear.

Most of the time, the presence of a black panther is a good omen. It shows that luck will soon arrive in your life. The panther is able to fearlessly blend into the darkness and skirt the edges of the light. It may mean that you do not feel afraid despite any dangers that are near you. If a panther crosses your path in the dream, it means that you are protected, so you do not have to be afraid. As long as you are courageous and true to yourself, you will not have a problem achieving what you want.

You rarely see a black panther in the wild. This is for two major reasons. First, there are very few black panthers left living in the wild today. Second, the black panther is quite elusive. It is essentially invisible at night, and it deliberately remains in the shadows. When a black panther appears in your dreams, it may mean that you feel that you are equally elusive. It may feel like you are invisible to other people, even when you are right in front of them. To get over this feeling of invisibility, you may need to focus your attention, communicate openly and work to get the attention to other people.

A black panther in the dream may also represent that you feel confident and fearless like the black panther. It could also show your fears about life, other people or success. The best way to determine what the dream means, consider what occurs in the dream and your own life situation. If you let it, the black panther is often a good omen and quite auspicious in your dreams.

      The dream seems to show your desire to gain the strength and wisdom of the black panther. The fact that you stop being afraid and are able to play with them in the dream most likely means you are letting go of your fears and gaining the black panther’s strength in your real life.

      The dream seems to show that you fear some mysterious, unknown force and how it could affect your son. You may feel like other people will be able to provide the help and support you need if you just reach out, which is why there were people there to save the day in your dream.

    I have this dream this morning,I was walking in a village like streets,they were a lot of black panthers on the left and right side of the streets,the first one was so beautiful and majestic and big,others are beautiful as well and they all look calm,I saw one that was caged,one in chains and one with a gray colour,I was a bit afraid at first ,but because they are calm ,I was a bit assured of safety,few people walked the road,I saw a man walking my direction,asked him if the panthers attack people,he said they rarely do unless you give them a reason to.I walk by the man side till I woke up.
    I have been thinking about this since morning,please can you help me interpret this dream please.Thanks for your lovely time reading this ,thanks.

      Perhaps the dream symbolizes your own search for the majesty and inner wisdom of the panther. The fact that you end up feeling calm may mean your subconscious mind is trying to tell you that you should remain calm no matter what happens in life.

    I have had two dreams with a black panther, but I’ll tell the first one I had. It started with me being in a truck with 2 males and 1 female, I didn’t know them. I didn’t know the guys names but the girl was named Anastasia (I don’t know anyone with that name) I didn’t know what was going on, I just knew that I had to been kidnapped; they were talking about taking me somewhere to be sold to a man (sex trafficking) they stopped at a liquor store and everyone went in besides the girl, she turned on the radio and it was playing Back in Black by ACDC, I told her to turn it up. The guys were getting out of the liquor store and I look out the window and see a black panther coming towards the truck, I got out and the guys started yelling at me and trying to push me back into the truck but the panther attacked both of them and killed them, the girl was still in the car and got into the driver’s seat and drove off. The panther looked at me then left into the woods where it came from, I then proceeded to go into the liquor store and call my boyfriend to come and get me from where ever I was. I have an idea of what that dream could have meant but I’m not for sure. I think the black panther represented my dad who will still be protecting me even if he’s not alive, I think that because of what song played on the radio, he loved ACDC. But I’d like to know if anyone else interprets this differently! 🙂

      It sounds like you have already made good headway on interpreting your dream. Often, the dreamer is the best person for dream interpretation because they know what specific symbols and elements mean for them.

    When I woke up my hands felt tingly and almost numb

      The dream seems to show your ability to use your strength to achieve what you want in life and to overcome obstacles. Instead of feeling fear, you already have the inner strength and agile grace of the panther.

      The dream shows an ability to face your fears and to overcome anything that scares you. By facing these fears, you can gain a new sense of confidence and strength just like the panther and tiger.

      Perhaps the dream symbolizes your desire to “capture” the grace, strength and wisdom of the panther as you would capture its image in the picture. The fact that you are trying to escape in the second dream seems to indicate you aren’t quite ready to achieve this goal yet, although I’m sure you will be able to with time.

      The dream may mean you feel like you have to work to achieve the wisdom and inner strength you need. You may also feel like you need other people to help you achieve these abilities, which is why your sister and the other person are there in the dream.

    My dream is a bit complicated because, I remember walking into a hotel with a music artist in my country, was discussing till we go into the suite and he said I should hang around while he went into one of the rooms, I noticed plenty of girls were walking around naked, like its a rooftop party but then I kinda noticed at the other side of the Building there were miners digging around looking for what I can’t explain… Suddenly a black panther sprung out and made a dash towards the left first, came back quickly and attacked.
    Everybody started running but I didn’t at first because I felt it wasn’t gonna attack my side until it came up and attacked me. I ran towards the stairs to find my way downstairs but the panther was way faster that I couldn’t use the steps, I had to jump between the center openings that connects the steps…

    That’s all I remember from my dream

      The dream seems to show a sense of fear of the black panther. Perhaps you feel as if the strength or dark mystery of the panther is too much, and you aren’t able to handle it in the dream. The dream could also just mean you feel like there is a hidden, unexpected danger lurking in your life like the black panther was in your dream.

    I was at home but not the usual home I know, it appeared differently. Suddenly I was out of the house with other people, I noticed a panther watching me from a tree that was just close to my home. I kept watching for it for I sensed danger, I informed the people I was with. Later some tree appeared away from the one closer to my home, my friends and I went towards them and there were alot of panthers, they claimed down coming our way, we turned and started running. Unfortunately they were faster so they cought us and we started fighting.. Two panthers died, somehow one panther came towards me leaving out all the others, it just wanted me and it suddenly changed into a human being, it was a woman in particular who was looking for a real fight with me. She looked like she was angry and in pain she had bruises, I was not scared of her, I hit her twice and she fell and I left.

    Later I was suppose to write a test but I had not prepared I asked for materials from two other friends of mine but they seemed hesitant. So I wanted to get my book in the house but my other friend now gave me her keys and we came together….. On our way I noticed a panther was on the tree just next to my house so we just went into my friends house instead, it kept creeping on us. In my friends room there were five empty beds and they took up all space. I think three more girls came when it saw them it ran towards the house but I was focused on its movement and I kept locking the house. The weird part was I was the one who was concede about it.

    Later the panther came and climbed on the roof of the house trying to make its ways in, I was scared but brave at the same time. Unforrunately it failed to get in. Lastly someone came to call me so I go sit for my test and I freaked out because I hadn’t prepared yet. So the three girls went out and I was abit distrusted the panther got in and when I noticed it was on the door already…. It came towards me and attacked me, I held it by its thought and struggled with it then I told my friend to sturb it, she was scared but I shouted that she needed to or it would attack us, then she sturb it three times, it groaned painfully and layed dead there. I wonder what this means

      Panthers are often indications of mysterious social relationships, and it is clear that your relationship is a manifestation of various influences that you have in your life. You may feel that there is someone new in your life who is part of many aspects of your school and home life. At the end of your dream, the panther was killed, which is often a symbol for change. Monitor your relationships, and determine if there is anyone that you need to address.

      Panthers are often manifestations of mysterious social relationships. Within the dream, you were following a path and relying on yourself, which could be an indication of how you are navigating your life at this time. Within the dream, the panther was supportive and kind, and this could be a sign of someone that you have recently developed a relationship with. Share your positive energy with the world, as this will bring you many benefits.

      Lions are often manifestations of strong emotional or familial relationships, and panthers are often indications of mysterious social relationships. It is possible that you are concerned about something in your life, which may cause you to respond in this manner. It is clear that the behaviors of your father within the dream were attempting to protect you.

      The panther may represent wisdom. Perhaps the dream was trying to show you that an alternative path (like the back gate) would take you to where you need to go, and you already have the knowledge and wisdom you need to accomplish what you want.

    I had a dream I was in the woods with my baby all of the sudden I saw a black panther far away. I was trying to figure out how it was possible that a black panther was in the woods. Out of no where the panther was no longer in sight I look back and it was actually closer to me I tried to hide. I tried to tell my baby not to say a word, but it found us . He was more into trying to get to the baby so I stood up to make it scared. It fought back we fought a little, I don’t know if I won or not because I woke up. What can this mean?

      Panthers are often manifestations of mysterious social relationships. It is possible that the presence of your baby is an indication of your emotional connection with your child. There may be someone new in your life that you are uncertain of. However, you are aware of the benefits of sharing your kindness and compassion with everyone in your life.

    I had a dream where I was in school, it was a sunny and bright day. I don’t remember seeing any other students. I saw a black panther. I was scared and ran into the closest closed space, one of the administrators office. I opened it and told the person inside to lock the door as there was a black panther. The black panther didn’t move and seemed peaceful but I was scared when I was near it.

      The dream most likely shows that you want to make changes in life and become more wise and strong like the panther. YOu may fear these kinds of changes and feel like you aren’t ready for them yet, which is why you locked yourself in the office in your dream.

    I had a dream last night where my close friend was trying to convince me that him taking his life was a good decision because he was in pain. There was more but the whole thing through me off. I noticed a big black cat that I assumed was a panther lurking. I saw it was attracted to him multiple times as it really payed no attention to me. I know he was dealing with some struggles in his waking life and even though it was my dream I can’t help but feel that he might be in trouble. One time it was about to jump on him as it creeped at ducked real low but it ended up just running away

      Panthers are often indications of mysterious social relationships. However, it seems that you are concerned about the mental health of your friend. Because of this, you should take the opportunity to share himself with you as well. Spend additional time together, as this will help the two of you navigate your lives. It is likely that he will appreciate your decision to support him.

    I seen this magistic animals in movies but I never knew I would dream of one, and that’s why I want an insight what this dream means.

    In my dream I was lost in a jungle with my friend, we heard a growl and saw the panther. We tried to fight it and escaped. I ran home and met my classmate back in high school in my mums room (weired) and she told me to wash out the scents from my body, or the panther will find me. I was still about to act on the instructions when I looked outside the window and saw the panther making it’s way into the house. I woke up with so much fear, that I couldn’t sleep any longer.

      The dream may mean you seek out strength and wisdom that you do not feel like you can actually master quite yet. You discovered the panther and barely managed to escape the fight, which seems to indicate that whatever quality you were seeking such as the panther’s strength is not entirely yours yet. It sounds like you will have to gain this quality no matter what since the panther was searching you out by the end of the dream.

      The dream shows a desire for courage and wisdom in your life. You may not feel like you have the strength necessary to protect the ones you love, which is why you had this dream. The fact that you are the only person there who is taking action seems to indicate that you feel like you have to take care of yourself and the people you care about in your waking life.
